Of course, it would help if the mental health industry had any idea about the human mind and its workings. But they don't. They are clueless.

Bring in a nurse or doctor who will act like a professional as they’re supposed to be and not report it to the company. Maybe this is a too tall order for companies since they’re footing the bill.

Color me skeptic on this, but if it can demonstrate it helps I am all for it. Still, it feels sad that so many people prefer to talk to a bot about their personal issues instead of another person that is supposed to be there to help.

And how healthy and useful that is... lol If you are stressed or overworked and take a little nap after lunch, the app will waken you up every 5 minutes AI-controlled , then, if you are getting angry and want to get rid of it and try to flee the office in panic , the bot will remind you not to forget the phone with that app and follow you also AI-controlled wherever you flee to and try to be at a silent space. You can only jump from the roof then, because the bot has of course sensors not to follow in this case. lol
